About the film:

The year is 3084, and space still holds many secrets. Project Delta was conceived in order to establish a dialogue between intergalactic civilizations. Soon after the alien journalist Alma boards the spaceship, she and the captain noticed that the ship’s AI could act by itself, exploring areas of human emotions with disastrous results.

Delta Space Mission is the first feature-length science fiction animated film made in Romania. Long unavailable, the 1984 film has recently been scanned in 4K from the camera negative by the Romanian Film Archive and Romanian Film Centre (CNC) for its first-ever release in the United States.
